Hello all. #introduction here. Comp-Sci scholar, gamedev and digital art tinkerer, longtime writer in science fiction and fantasy.
Favorite authors I can think of at the moment include Brian Lumley, Neal Asher, and Jane Yolen.

i would love it if we could transition away from calling a certain genre of horror, "Lovecraftian," and towards calling it "Eldritch." Lovecraft was not the strongest author among his contemporaries in the genre, and he was a bad person as well. I'd prefer it if the style didn't carry his namesake
Reminder that modern consoles run on the same hardware as PCs. That means the same app or game can run on almost every piece of modern hardware with the same assembly language code. (Or at least two different versions of it: x86_64 and ARM64, maybe an ARMv7 version too.)
There is no reason something made exclusively for XBox couldn't also run on PS4 or PC. Same for a PC game running on XBox/PS4. It's all limitations on the OS designed to prevent things from working without *their* OS software.

Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.
I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.
Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.
I wrote an article for the Mozilla Hacks blog that's a brief technical introduction to ActivityPub. I also provide an intro to my simple #ActivityPub Node.js server.
